Step One

We did the outline today. Still have along way to go. Were not sure what color he will be yet. The outline went fairly smooth with the exception of some   little bugs flying into the shop. Will do some more work in about two weeks. We are also going to add a dragon and background behind the oni.  Hopefully are progress will stay consistent. Thank you Scott!

Homework

homeworkI get to do a Horiyoshi III print tomorrow. Its pretty exciting for me. Horiyoshi III is a huge influence for me. I love doing oni’s and all kinds of other Japanese tattoos. I prefer drawing all the tattoos i do. but sometimes you just need to show the customer some amazing art work to get the job done. I believe this design should be used for a back piece but I will be tattooing it on an arm. So I’m making a couple minor changes, to make the design more clear. Scott my customer also asked me to make some specific changes for his likings. Will post pictures of the tattoo in the future. but for now I’m going to bed and making a final drawing tomorrow.

PS. I was never good at homework.
